Embrace or Rebel? Traditional Asian Art Techniques in Contemporary Practice, a group exhibition curated by gallery director Hyewon Yi, presents works in various media by seven Contemporary East Asian artists who interpret traditional methods in innovative ways. Embrace or Rebel? considers long-established Asian techniques and styles that have taken a backseat to Contemporary East Asian art, partly due to their being viewed as antithetical to Modernism.

Enrico Isamu Oyama received an ACC Fellowship in 2011 to research contemporary art, meet artists and curators, and create new work while participating in an artist residency program in the United States.
